Open or Shut

Contrary to what many believe, Buddhist meditation is not just about closing down sensory doorways – including thought and those of the mind – and going into some tightly managed place of perceptual deprivation.


Blocking the ‘enter here’ doorways of eye, nose, tongue, ear, body and mind may lead to moments of non-struggle.

Opening those doorways wide and embracing all that enters, you’ll find nothing can save you from growth . . . you’ll no longer remain as you were.

At any moment your meditation space may be a cozy cushion or a launching pad.

The choice is yours.

~If this resonates with you . . . neither grief or a broken heart, or fear, precludes you from journeying.
